Bio Photo Find a Grave has been helpful to me in my research and I would like to return the favor. If I have created a memorial for a relative I will transfer at your request.I welcome corrections for any errors I've made.


Sometimes God picks the flower
That is still in bloom
Sometimes the rosebud's chosen
That we feel He's picked too soon
Sometimes the flower is fading
With petals floating down
But God knows the perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground
There is a heavenly garden
In which God takes great pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest
And I know that it must please him
Because He chose our very best.

RE: Ben Smiley, Leagueville
Thanks Wayne, I would be happy to maintain the memorial for Ben Smiley. I'm a cousin from another branch of the tree descended from Asa Smiley's brother Payton. Anything you know about these Smiley's very appreciated! - Lynn

RE: Weaver Brittain, Folsom Chapel
Wayne, this has taken a lot of research and I had to go to WW I draft registration to get the answer:

James David Weaver Brittain

I have attached Weaver (the name evidently he preferred) draft registration to my memorial and have changed the name to James David Weaver Brittain. On, there are several trees under David Weaver Brittain. The name on the 1900 Census showed him to be David. 1910, 1920, 1930, 1940, show him to be Weaver. That is also the name on the tombstone. Except for the fact that there are numerous links to my memorial, I would just delete my memorial. Sorry, please see if you can get the photo transfer and thanks for giving me a heads up on this one.
